Zooland # 1 of 365 Places to Live in Columbus

Welcome to Clintonville signZooland is  # 1 of '365 Places to live in Columbus.'   Zooland is not a neighborhood with a pretty little marker telling you, you are  entering Zooland.  Zooland is in north Columbus, mixed in with Beechwold. Now there are about 6 houses on the market identified as Zooland.  They are on Jeffrey, Beechwold, Morse and Royal Forest.  East Royal Forest, of course.

Zooland and most of Beechwold are post small World War II homes.

Zooland is named after a zoo.  The first Columbus Zoo?  The zoo was an early Columbus zoo anyway.   The zoo was where Old Beechwold is now.  Clintonville lions and tigers and bears oh my...

You can see the name Zooland in the public records.  Occasionally you see "Zooland" in the Columbus Board of Realtors MLS as a subdivision.

I love the name Zooland... it makes me think of a long ago ghostly zoo.

Zooland is in the City of Columbus and the Columbus City School District.

365 Places to Live in Columbus is about the greater Columbus area, not just the city of Columbus.  365 Places to Live in Columbus is a Facebook page too.

Clintonville, Beechwold, Zooland...

Super explantation. You do so well at unearthing the local history, why neighborhoods are called what they are, where they are. Now we know about the "zoo".

Hi Maureen... Zooland reminds me of that Ben Stiller movie of a few years ago, "Zoolander"  I wonder if that's how residents of Zooland refer to themselves?
